Surety and Contract Bonds

Sometimes, as a contractor, you will be required to have a surety bond (sometimes called a contract bond) to ensure you complete the task as outlined in the contract – you can do it! Vern Fonk will help you get a surety bond for your business so you can get back to work, make more money, and stress a whole lot less.


What is a Surety Bond?

A surety bond (contract bond) is something that certifies the job will be done according to what is contractually obligated. If it is not, the amount of money determined in the bond will be paid to the person getting the work done.

A surety bond is created to protect the person getting the work done. It protects them from contracting work that doesn’t get done according to the contract.

There are many different types of contract bonds that you can get, depending on what type of industry you are in. There are bonds for general contractors, specialty contractors, electric contractors, etc. The amount of the bond also varies and can be determined at the time of purchase. They are typically between $5,000 – $100,000 but can be even larger.

A surety bond is not exactly an insurance policy, it is a guarantee that the contractor will perform the obligation as stated in the bond. If the contractor fails to perform the obligation, the surety bond provider will make a payout to the client up to the bond limit – phew!
